Global Learning Adventures

Are you an avid or novice traveler that wants to put a different twist to their travel?  Exploring foreign cities is exciting and full of mystery. Consider coupling that sense of adventure with a learning experience in a foreign city where you can fully immerse yourself in the culture. The options are truly only limited by your imagination. Think of your hobbies and interests and how they could translate into a global learning adventure. Are you a budding chef or want to be sailor? Do you have a strong desire to learn another language of harvest grapes in a vineyard? All of these adventures can become a reality with a bit of research, flexibility and ingenuity. The trips and excursions are certainly available; the fun part is uncovering them and tailoring them to meet your interests, timetable and budget. Follow these recommendations from the professional travel planners and you’ll soon be packing for the adventure of a lifetime.

The first step is to set a budget and secure your dates. Explore your options based on your budget and the duration of your dates. Cooking classes in France, vineyard harvesting in Germany and language lessons in Italy are all viable options. Many organizations that structure these adventures offer the option for home stays with hosts that open their homes to visitors. There are so many advantages to staying in a private home. Full cultural and linguistic immersion are the two primary advantages. Couple those with the local knowledge and direction that can be gained from staying with a local. They’ll steer you in the best direction for shopping, dining and excursions.

Finally, begin to book your flights and determine the logistics of your home stay options. Take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and explore the great fares and destinations offered by Emrites’ new fleet of aircraft. Check the expiration date on your passport and order your foreign currencies from your local bank branch. Notify your cell phone carrier that you will be travelling abroad for an extended period and need a data plan. Purchasing a prepaid SIM card is also an option for data access. Confirm that your phone has a removable SIM card before selecting this option.

Best of luck to you on your adventure of a lifetime!
